In 2020, fans of Thalaivar Rajinikanth and Thala Ajith will see their matinee-idols in Khaki. Though both the actors have done a few cop films in the past they weren't big hits.
In the blockbuster 'Moondru Mugam'(1982), Rajini played the iconic 'Alex Pandian' but it wasn't a full-fledged role. Later, he acted as a cop in films like 'Pandian', Nattuku Oru Nallavan and 'Kodi Parakuthu' in Tamil but they weren't huge hits. Ajith donned Khaki in Anjaneya and Yennai Arindhaal, both the films tanked at the box office. Just like how Rajinikanth appeared as a cop in a few scenes in Moondru Mugam, Ajith's role in the blockbuster 'Mankatha' wasn't a full-fledged cop.
But audiences expecting that Darbar directed by AR Murugadoss and Valimai directed by Vinoth will break this poor track record of the cop films of these two leading stars in Tamil cinema.
While 'Darbar' is all set to release for Pongal 2020, 'Valimai' is likely to release on Diwali 2020.
